South African politics is a stagnant pit of racial extremists, communist aristocracy and spineless grey suits. The trajectory of the country
is clear and the downward hill is getting steeper.
~ Jack Miller Cape Party Leader
“In the Western Cape the lockdown reminds us of the futility of the DA provincial government. It has no real powers and the ANC overrules it at will.
Only Cape Independence will rid us of ANC rule.“
The Cape Party was founded in 2007.
In 2008, the Cape Party was officially registered with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) as a political party in the Republic of South Africa.
Our first hope is that the ANC-controlled South African government will engage in immediate negotiations to bring an end to the long-standing political, social and economic oppression that they have imposed without challenge on the Cape and its people to this day.
By allowing for greater provincial control over our own economic, social and political affairs we will, at the least, be able to relieve our people of some of the daily persecution we endure. If the opportunity to negotiate fairly is not possible, then the Cape Party will be left no option but to use all legal and peaceful means to bring into effect greater autonomy of the Cape from the Republic of South Africa, or pursue complete independence… The Cape Republic.
If the Cape Party were to receive a majority vote in an election within the Cape territory, this would be an official mandate from the people to hold a referendum to declare the Cape an independent country.
As an independent state, with sound political and economic policies, we envision a system of direct democracy enabling the rebirth of a nation based on mutual respect, peace and prosperity…
…The Cape of Good Hope.
Vision for The Cape Republic
The Cape Republic is roughly the size of France, has a GDP of over R400 Billion, and in virtually all measures performs better than any province in South Africa. It is worth mentioning that of the R185 Billion the Western Cape sends to the national treasury a mere R45 Billion is returned. R140 Billion remains in the national sphere of government which is controlled by the ANC. We are being financially bled dry. The fact is that an independent Cape is far more economically viable than the Republic of South Africa.
The Cape Party firmly believes that policies are neither left nor right, but rather right or wrong. As such we use the world as our laboratory to see which models succeed and which fail. We look to imitate the economic freedom of Singapore and the grassroots democracy of Switzerland. Our policy of immigration by invitation is practiced by all major countries and we wish to replicate this in an independent Cape Republic.
The Cape Party believes that Representative Democracy (i.e. the system that elects representatives to parliament through political parties) has failed. It is an outdated and ineffective means of governing a country and lends itself to secrecy and corruption. The public interest is sold out by political parties in favour of personal gain or for the benefit of special interest groups.
We thus favour Direct Democracy and a system of referendum, initiative, recall, and nullification based on the Swiss model of government. Political power is decentralised and returned to its root: the voter, the tax-payer, the citizen.
The 20th century taught the world that smaller is better. Smaller states are better governed, better run, more cohesive, and more accountable than larger super states which invariably fail due to their size.
Our challenge now is to share the message with our fellow citizens that the country we always longed for is possible.
(The following video clip is a stark reminder of how Mandela and the ANC duped South Africa into believing in a better future for all. A shame really. They were handed South Africa on a plate, a prosperous first world country with all the expertise to keep it there. We still have the skills in the Western Cape to save what’s left. We just need the backbone to stand up and fight for Independence. The DA isn’t going to do it for you. They are going to once again threaten you with “If you don’t vote DA the ANC will win the Western Cape”. It’s not going to work any more. There are now in excess of 400,000 in the Western Cape calling for Independence!!! ARE YOU ONE??? )
Over the past 25 years South Africa has followed a path of decline. Its moral authority has vanished, the prestige of its economic development is diminished. The country’s prospects for the future are more dire than what we have experienced over the past 10 years.
In March Cyril Ramaphosa promised that no Covid-19 funds would be misappropriated. Four months later he is investigating the misappropriation of Covid-19 funds. Media reports suggest that up to R2.2 Billion has been looted. As predictable as night following day, ANC comrades have continued their criminal feeding frenzy unabated.
The ANC should really be classified as an international crime syndicate, not a political party. They have managed to loot and destroy virtually every functioning part of this country and use it to enrich themselves. The national treasury is nothing else than a feeding trough for comrades and cadres alike. They continue to feast off taxpayers’ money at the expense of those in dire need.
Surely now even those who doubt must conclude that the only way forward is an independent state in the Western Cape.
